So here goes nothing...I have been on a massive gaming spree for about 3 weeks now. I have been crazy motivated and despite everything going on I am making headway. Not only am I finding time to go back and start finishing up games that I have long let sit in my "I'll finish it eventually pile" I am starting new things and finding myself getting sucked in for more than 5 minutes at a time. '
Two games I have started finishing back up is Fable III, and Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. I put fable away shortly after it came out because I got burnt out, I could not keep playing it, but I had been on a massive playing spree of fable 2 in the weeks before it came out and i think it finally wore me out. Oblivion I could not get into for the life of me when I first got my xbox, I have the dlc and everything i just couldn't make myself play past the sewer at the beginning, I think it was far too much like fallout which I had just finished on the pc and was trying to start on 360(something I have yet to finish or even think about). Oblivion is a relatively easy game to complete and get the full 1250 on. It was just finding the right time to do it and now is the time!!!!!
I only have to finish up the fighters guild(got fucked out of champion thank god for having 2 save files) the mages guild, shivering isles, and then the main story. Not bad considering I despised this game at first.
I picked up Child of Eden and all I can say is fucking wow! The game is so visually stunning it nearly hurts. I could only play 1 level before having to put it down, I played with kinect instead of a controller and it was sheer amazing, no lag or anything. The game will give you seizures if you happen to be epileptic and will give you a massive headache if you don't because of how much there is to look at on screen. But the premise and gameplay is nearly flawless other than hurting your eyes. The story is refreshing, new and intriguing enough to keep you playing.
I picked up the new X-Men game X-Men: Destiny and it is a typical action adventure with options on what you do. The game is easy and annoying all at the same time and really just makes you want to shank yourself with its cartoony story and annoying camera angles. For 60 dollars this game is a loser, for 20 or less this is an entertaining day or so.
I broke a rule of mine that is long withstanding and played the new Madden. I haven't truly played a madden game since 98, I have 06 on my card but that was mostly sim from franchise mode and some easy unentertaining crap with a friend for about an hour. I actually kind of enjoyed this game, shockingly enough. I was able to easily remember how to play from my knowledge of 98 and the achievements were actually kind of fun, i mean come on kicking a 60+ yard field goal is fucking hilarious to try to accomplish, and rushing for over 231+ yards with one player was a fun challenge. I played about 2 games in exhibition and started a Superstar. This game was a rental and was worth the 2 bucks. I will one day rent it again to finish it up, I only got 365G before shipping it back to Blockbuster.
I have spent alot of time with Fruit Ninja Kinect lately. It came as a download out of my copy of The Gunstringer(which I haven't played yet but willllll very sooon). I completed the WP7 version in February and I have to say I love this version. I bought 1 dlc pack so far and will more than likely purchase the other 2 also. There is something therapeutic about hacking and slashing fruit especially if you imagine someones head on the screen....oh wait that is a different game, anyhow...
Dead Island is a soul sucker, sheer and simple. Soul. Sucker. I spent days just running around on the island not doing shit. Which was fun but was horrible for my gamerscore. I got 80G from my headless running but this is a game for another time with me, I'm burnt on the zombie craze.
I have been into Age of Empires online, if anyone else out there is playing send me a friend request, we can get some achievements together and do some co-op.
Those are the big time suckers of right now, I'm busy compiling a list of achievements and such that have been earned since my last true post in may....and working on a youtube channel to be launching sometime before christmas hopefully.
Here goes nothing, wish me luck all,
